    Dear Parent / Carers, For those children who are entering the Brackenhill Bake Off, entries need to be handed in to the school office on Monday 11th February by 10am, complete with a piece of paper with the child's name and class on and an ingredient list. The entries will be judged during the morning with the results announced at a special assembly that afternoon at 2.40pm, which parents / carers of entrants are invited to.

    Drop off zone
    Dear Parent/Carers, Unfortunately it has come to our attention that a small number of parents/carers are not using the drop off facility safely. The drop off zone is for cars only. Please can all users of the drop off zone ensure that they follow one line of traffic, do not overtake other cars and stick to the 5 mph speed limit. This is for the safety and welfare of all the children and parent/carers using the car park. Please also ensure that you only allow your child to leave the car when your vehicle has reached the gate at the furthest point of the drop off zone and never leave your child unsupervised. There have also been reports of cars being parked outside of the schools gates which is blocking the traffic in and out of the car park. All parents/carers have signed a SCHOOL DROP OFF AGREEMENT and the rules of that agreement are outlined below - • Drop off my child/children at the Drop Off Zone between 8.35am and 8.50am • Ensure there is a member of school staff present to hand my child/children over to, before letting them get out of the car • Never leave my child/children unsupervised at the Drop Off Zone • Only allow my child to leave the car when my vehicle has reached the gate at the furthest point of the Drop Off Zone • Take my child/children to the classroom directly if I need to discuss anything with their class teacher • Take my child/children to the classroom directly if we are on foot • Never leave my vehicle unattended in the Drop Off Zone to take other children to Nursery • Park in marked parking bays that allow parking • Not move the cones under any circumstance • Treat staff in school with respect Please also remember that the car park is for staff only to park. You will not be able to gain access to the car park after drop off closes for the rest of the day unless you have authorisation from the head teacher. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

    Dear Parent/Carer, Please find below a link to a leaflet that has been put together for parents/carers regarding the game Fortnite: Battle Royale, which is incredibly popular with young people at the moment. The leaflet is designed to be positive and informative, rather than scaring parents. There is advice about the content, how to turn off chat, and where to get help and support. The link to the booklet is - http://bit.ly/fortniteleaflet If you would like further information, or have any concerns surrounding your child playing this game or any other online games please speak to a member of the office staff who can arrange a meeting with the Pastoral Team.
